“I took my CNA certification as a personal challenge, to confirm to myself that I had been successful in my ongoing learning as a nurse since graduation. I renewed my certification because it demonstrates to those around me my commitment to refining my practice and to lifelong learning.” – Laura Neal, RN, BN, MN, CMSN(C), CD
The first exam for Certification in Medical-Surgical Nursing became possible in 2010. Currently there are over 500 Registered Nurses across Canada that are certified in Medical-Surgical Nursing!
Certification represents a commitment to the leading edge in health-care standards, and it gives national scope to continuing competence initiatives. When you achieve certification it shows your commitment to a national standard of professional expertise and an in-depth understanding in your area of nursing practice.
